When I was a kid I used to dream about settling all of my conflicts Bruce Lee-style by knocking fools out with backfists and spinning roundhouses.
Now, there’s a pretty good chance that the video above is fake, considering the kick doesn’t seem to connect, but if it isn’t it’s one of the best incidences of poetic justice we’ve ever seen.

Former undefeated World Combat League fighter and K1 standout Raymond Daniels, who lost his one and only MMA bout under the Strikeforce banner back in 2008 was back in action this weekend at K1: Pain and Glory in Dublin and luckily for us the dramatic finish to his brief bout was caught on tape by our friends at FightIreland.com.
As you can see in the GIF above, Daniels nearly took his unnamed opponent’s head off with a vicious well-timed spinning wheel kick that prompted immediate referee intervention.
Check out the video of the KO and Daniel’s highlight reel after the jump.Read More DIGG THIS

If you haven’t heard of this latest hipster craze, Planking (AKA The Lying Down Game) is when a person lays flat on their back or stomach and stiff as a board in a random location and someone snaps a photo of them. Ingenious, isn’t it?
Anyway, there have been several variations of where “Planking” originated, but really you need look no further than our beloved sport if you want to know the true roots of the fad.
Check out the gallery after the jump of MMA fighters planking, before there was a name for what they were doing.Read More DIGG THIS

If you watched Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu this weekend and read any of the ensuing commentary on MMA websites and messageboards, by now you have digested a lot of talk about the weak chins of fighters like Renato "Babalu" Sobral, Scott Smith, Mike Kyle and Matt Lindland.
Some writers and posters even went so far as to call for their retirement, as if they have any say in the matter.
If a fighter’s health is at risk, either long or short-term, then I’m all for them hanging up the gloves, but it isn’t up to anyone but them to decide when that time is.
As far as the uninformed opinions that a fighter’s "KO button" is easier to push or that his chin is weaker as a compound result of multiple knockouts incurred over the span of his career, both are fundamentally incorrect.Read More DIGG THIS

According to Mike Goldberg, Todd Duffee‘s seven-second pwnage of Tim Hague at UFC 102 was "officially the fastest knockout in UFC history." Previously, the company line was that James Irvin and Don Frye held the record jointly with their eight-second knockouts of Houston Alexander and Thomas Ramirez, respectively. But hardcore fans know the truth. Above is a gif of Duane "Bang" Ludwig‘s knockout of Jonathan Goulet at UFC Fight Night 3, in which Mario Yamasaki rushes in to save the starched Canadian at the four-second mark. So why don’t we ever hear about it? Well, the timekeeper effed up and reported the official time of the stoppage as 11 seconds. And that’s still how they have the time listed on UFC.com and Sherdog. Duffee may have given us one of the most fearsome Octagon debuts since Tank Abbott, but at the very least his "record" should have an asterisk next to it…

Not sure who these dudes are, but good Lord, check out the expression on the loser’s face after eating that kick. All he needs is some cartoon birds chirping around his head to complete the scene. Seriously, he’s lucky the winner didn’t run over and draw dicks on his face.
After the jump: Michael Bisping and Dan Henderson get a first look at the tricked-out Range Rovers they’ll be getting as rewards for coaching TUF 9. Both fighters say that they’re having great training camps in advance of their meeting at UFC 100, and are ready to get after it. Bisping actually feels like he could take on anyone in the world right now. He’ll need that confidence next month when Henderson is on top of him, covering his mouth and nose with one hand and punching him with the other.Read More DIGG THIS

Last Saturday, Nick Felix won the ALLSTARMMA welterweight title at an event in Springdale, Arkansas, by Cro Cop’ing the crap out of Jeffrey Escobar. Escobar had come into the fight with a 3-0 record, with all wins by first-round stoppage; unfortunately, he didn’t even last 10 seconds that night. Just as impressive as Felix’s head kick knockout was the diving tackle the ref made to get him to stop whaling on his unconscious opponent. One more performance like that and he’ll be able to break into the top 5. For more ALLSTARMMA fight videos, click here.
